Michael & Casey Meet

April 26, 2007

The perfect meeting story. At the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Casey and Michael meet, become friends. I’m shy and around a month later ask her to dinner and a movie. She shows up for dinner, stoned, on Lortabs, drinks a couple of cocktails tells me she slept with the guy that was on our weekend beach trip which is why she knew of his problem with brushing his teeth. I should have walked away then. Red flags all over the place.

Mother’s Day

May 14, 2017

Mother’s Day. The family goes on a hike together: Megan, Cecelia Casey, and Michael. Photo of smiles and happiness. This was around one month before the family was torn apart with no reason given at all. I post this photo on Facebook with the caption: Happy Mother’s Day to the Best Mother ever. I love you!  Little did I know what she had in store for me. Cecelia is 2, Megan is 14. I have been helping raise her since she was 4.After the separation which was coming in 2 weeks, she would…

My 48th birthday! As my big present, my wife gives me a coupon to go on a Biplane ride for 2. I find this curious, as she’s never shown an interest in this. Who is to be the 2nd person? We’ll never know or find out. No party, dinner, or card. Just a printed-out coupon from the printer. My heart floweth over with love.

Marriage Still on, Everything Seems Normal

June 10, 2017

This was the last day I had texted Casey asking how everyone’s doing. The previous week, for 7 days, she went on a vacation with her daughter, my then-step-daughter who was 14 and left Cecelia with me to have fun with. It was a wonderful week I had with just Cecelia, who was 2 at the time. She returned that weekend, and on Monday left again with both girls, for another vacation. As a teacher, she has the whole summer off. June 10th, which was the Friday of that week, I texted her and told her how much I had been getting done while the three of them were gone because I wasn’t having to stay up all day and night with…

Something is Wrong

An EPO is filed against me, along with the Divorce Petition

June 20, 2017

The Sherrif shows up at the door to serve me with an EPO, which I’d never heard of before. It was a motion for a restraining order for me, basically, because she was claiming to be afraid of me. After 10 year of being together, forgiving her of some very foul activities at my and my bosses’ marital expense, and being married for 7 years, and helping raise her daughter for 10 years. And…

EPO Hearing Day Comes, I’m Served Divorce Papers as I enter the Courtroom by Her

July 28, 2017

The date for the EPO hearing comes. I have an emotional breakdown in the courtroom, which is unlike me, a very stolid person. She serves me divorce papers as I enter the courtroom as a “welcome back, good to see you.” The case is dismissed within 10 minutes because she had no case. There was no evidence, and reason to consider her lies. She hadn’t ever called the police because there was never a reason to, and she was making things up. This allowed me to see Cecelia for the first time in a long time. But this was…

Divorce Settlement Official!

A day to forever remember and think about. Nearly seven years earlier, I had a person VOW to me before God and everyone we held dear that she would never leave me. Today, that was officially made a lie. A BIG one. Seh divorced me and broke our home up and severed our marital bonds, whatever those ended up being worth.

Things Get Out of Control

May 3, 2021

This is Ground Zero. This was the day I was with my daughter, her mother came to my house unannounced and uninvited and went haywire. She tried to come into our house, ran back to her car which was parked in my driveway, pulled it out onto the street, and called the police. This was the final straw for her and she was going to get a sense of control no matter what. The police arrived, she realized they weren’t going to make the child go with her, which I would have allowed in the very first place had I been just asked and let known her mother was driving herself over. The police asked if there had been any physical contact, and that was the trigger that set everything off. She knew she could claim there had bee, which would not only allow her to leave with our daughter, which she would have anyway, and then escalate the whole thing through the roof. Which she did, and then drove off with our daughter.
